1.Why do you want to be on Dancing with the Stars? To experience life fully and meaningfully! And of course
to have fun! Why fully? I have loved dancing since I was very little but I never got the opportunity to take any dance
classes as we didn't have money for them. Now that the opportunity is here, I couldn't pass on what will be an amazing
experience. Some would think that being part of Dancing with the Stars is perhaps the riskiest way to learn how to
dance, but I'm living life to the fullest. Plus there's the added bonus of learning how to dance from some of the most
talented dancers out there. Why meaningfully? Meaningfully because of all my personal experiences and learning that
every moment is a gift. I try to take these gifts and channel them into avenues that are beneficial to others. That's
why everything that I do has to have a deeper meaning and a point to help others. My heart and most of my time is with
Happy Hearts Fund – rebuilding schools to bring a brighter future to children who are suffering and forgotten after
natural disasters around the world.
2. Which dance style do you think is most "you" ? During the day - jive, and in the evening - rumba.
3. What do you think is your biggest handicap to overcome if you're going to win? I think my biggest handicap could be my commitment to putting 100% of myself into everything I do. I need to be mindful of my back injury from my accident but I don't want that to be a deterrent. I want everyone to see me perform the Waltz and not just do the Waltz.
4. Do you have a "Dancing" hero (pro dancer? ) / Are any former DWTS stars an inspiration to you? Oh, yes. Definitely Jennifer Grey and Nicole Scherzinger, who both gave so much to each performance and they dance just so amazingly with such precision and passion!
5. Is there a particular dance/dance style that you most fear? Oh ... All of them as I have never learned any of them!
